    No cost considerations were noted in the stated topic. The topic goal and solution is driven about the shortest time span to detection of the event and does not provide any considerations for methane quantities released

    Be able to explain if the solution be reasonably implemented in a multitude of locations nationwide? If not, then explain why the solution can only be implemented in certain national geographic locations over others.

    Develop a prototype based on the concept of operations and pilot test the solution. The technological solution (i.e., tool) should be easy to use and access by the public through personal technology equipment and/or public centers such as libraries, community centers, etc. Additionally, the tool should be easy for transit agencies to implement/incorporate with their existing technology platforms.

    There are no costs guidelines. With that said, consider the target user. Innovative solutions (i.e. funding, mobility, etc.) to the topic are welcome and can be submitted as well.

    It is the offeror’s business decision how to construct and present its best idea in the application. FTA has no particular preference between cloud-based vs on-premise solutions. Competitive applications should provide adequate details to articulate the merits of the proposed approach.

    Possible outcomes of active mobility management and incentivization strategies may include carbon reductions, or consider climate impacts. FTA welcomes applications that highlight all anticipated outcomes and benefits of their proposed strategy or approach, including carbon reductions.

    Strategies utilizing public blockchains will be considered. Competitive applications should provide adequate details on the blockchain type and/or architecture and how it may best support the proposed application, including the technical merits and feasibility.

    FTA welcomes any innovative idea that use blockchain-based systems to improve mobility services for all. Such ideas may include, but not be limited to, token sharing strategies, and other approaches for earning, buying, sharing or trading tokens that support incentivization to encourage transit use.

    A proposed business approach or strategy may include State DOTs, or other local government entities depending on the business model considered. For example, State and local entities may incentivize transit and other mobility alternatives and manage scarce parking or curbside resources or explore partnerships with private entities to incentivize mobility alternatives.

    Yes, you can submit individual offers to address any number of topics. An offer must be submitted for each topic independent of another topic. A single offer cannot be on more than one research topic.

    Regarding the resources of the edge computing platform, it is assumed that the offeror will need to purchase an off-shelf edge server from the open market with plenty of CPU and GPU power to process video and text data from at least three nearby intersections, assuming each intersection has four cameras and one signal controller. If additional sensors (radar, lidar, …) are proposed, there may be additional costs in sensor purchase and installation, and additional requirements in data transfer bandwidth and edge sever processing power. As long as latency requirements are met for real time signal phasing application, fusing additional sensors’ data is welcome addition. Another requirement is that the communications between the edge server and the intersections are via 5G high speed Internet rather than direct point-to-point communication, this removes differences in distance induced latency.

    One of the major focus areas for this topic is to assess the practicability of edge computing to this type of real time traffic operation application. In doing so, we welcome offers fusing video detection with other technologies but have set a minimum outcome given that cameras are already installed in many locations, and the only additional investment needed to start the research is introducing 5G wireless Internet communication between the cameras and the nearby edge sever.
